America’s Great Outdoors – Americans’ best memories often come from time spent outdoors with family and friends on hiking trails, in neighborhood parks, at historic sites, at the beach and along the coast, or on the banks of a favorite stream. The outdoors is where we connect with one another, explore our past, and discover our heritage. It is part of our national identity.
National Wildlife Refuge Association – the umbrella organization for refuge “friends” groups
Theodore Roosevelt Association – a national historical society and public service organization that has perpetuated the memory and legacy of our nation’s 26th President through an array of historical and cultural activities. President Roosevelt designated Pelican Island as the nation’s first wildlife refuge in 1903. Please visit the TR Association website for more information, or contact the TRA-Pelican Island Chapter of Florida by email at trapi-at-comcast.net or call Rebecca at 772-226-7296.
